Erdogan urges Muslims to ‘visit’ and ‘protect’ Jerusalem

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday urged all Muslims to visit and protect Jerusalem after violence broke out over metal detectors Israel installed and later removed from a sensitive holy site in the city.

“From here I make a call to all Muslims. Anyone who has the opportunity should visit Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa mosque,” Erdogan said in Ankara. “Come, let’s all protect Jerusalem.”

He was referring to a site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, which is central to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Israel installed metal detectors at entrances to the mosque compound, which also contains the Dome of the Rock, following an attack on July 14 that killed two Israeli police officers.

Disturbing Prophetic Vision Details Tanks Rolling Through American Cities

America will not be destroyed from the outside, but from within, author and minster Pat Schatzline says the Lord told him.

The revelation came after Schatzline received a very vivid specific vision.

“I was standing on the street corner just worshipping the Lord when suddenly I saw tanks coming into the streets of America. And I thought, ‘Lord, what is that?’ … I saw tanks going through the streets of America and people being rounded up.”

Schatzline says the force of his vision caused him to weep.

“Here’s what I believe with all my heart. We’re now at a place where we celebrate perversion. We’re now in a day where Islam is, people are excited about Islam and they, it’s the blinders of this world … We’ve taken babies and turned it into a voting bloc instead of it being a child.”

Second Gaza rocket in 24 hours hits southern Israel

IDF tank fire struck and destroyed a Hamas instillation in the southern Gaza Strip on Monday morning in response to rockets that had been fired from the enclave towards southern Israel, the military said.

The response by the IDF came after two rockets struck the southern Israel communities of Sha’ar HaNegev and Eshkol regional councils on Sunday. Both rockets fell in open areas and did not cause any damage.

The Code Red siren alerts were not activated in both incidents and the army is investigating why the warning system did not pick up the launch of the first rocket.

The rocket launches come amid escalating violence in Jerusalem and the West Bank following a deadly terror attack which killed two Israeli police officers that led Israeli authorities to install metal detectors at the entrances to the Temple Mount Complex in Jerusalem’s Old City.

Iranian Missile Expansion Into Lebanon Sets Stage For Conflict With Israel

Newly-built Iranian missile factories in Lebanon can produce powerful weapons for Hezbollah — and are part of a wider trend that could set the region on fire — according to a senior former Israeli defense source.

“There is no doubt that this is a new and very dangerous stage,” the source told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), speaking on the condition of anonymity. He said that Iran has, for the first time, placed military production industries directly in Hezbollah’s possession.

“This points to the fact that Lebanon is not a state, but a branch of Iran that is controlled by Hezbollah, and that Iran, after the nuclear agreement, feels that it can do everything because no one dares harm it,” the source added.

Tehran’s alliance with Moscow gives the Islamic Republic “extraordinary power, and hence, Iran allows itself to do what it has not dared do without the alliance with Russia,” the source said.
